I saw Dinko's cases in the For Sale section and they looked great, beautiful leather, solid construction and fit and finish.

I haven't bought a cue case in 7 years, but contacted him to make me a 1x2 Hustler style case.

It should be done soon, I will let the pictures speak, thanks Dinko!

Beautiful case!��

I've known Dinko for a quite few years and he has been interested in leather work from the first moment I met him. He started out from nowhere and from nothing and learned everything by himself since there is no one here you would be able to learn from.
Every next case was better than previous and now he is building really nice cases. Leather he uses is always fat and highly quality so they will last for a life time.
Beside all this, he is a great, polite, humble and highly trustworthy guy and his prices are hard to beat. Nowadays, you can't get a vinyl case for that money.
I am so glad that some of you already recognized his work and appreciate hard hand work.
Market is full of production things without hard which all look the same and most of people lost interest for highly quality things built by hands but I am so glad that still there are some who love custom things and support these few guys who put lots of effort to build something unique what will last for years to come!��

Could be a while, apparently there are some restrictions on EU to US shipments. Will post review when it arrives-

Dinko Case Arrived!

I received the case yesterday. It took a long time from Croatia, as the C19 slowed everything down. All of the pictures are already in this thread. Dinko stayed in regular communication with me for the entire time he started the case until it arrived at my door, about 2 months.

It was the best-packed pool related item I ever received. Dinko even made a custom protective sleeve for the case. I took me about 15 minutes to open it, no danger of damage on its long journey.

Dinko made the case exactly to my specifications, side and top handle, no shoulder straps and a 10 inch pocket. The quality of the leather is the best I have seen. It is thick, supple, and masterfully stitched together. Hardware is high quality and polished. It is a super stylish, great-looking case and is very light to carry. Dinko is going to follow up with me this weekend with leather care instructions.

The interior is memory foam sleeves, and they are very tight. My guess is that the leather will stretch from having the cue pieces inside.

When I first saw his cases in the Gallery, I ordered one immediately, as I have a feeling they will be in high demand very soon.

Thanks Dinko!!
